If the power — and price — of the upcoming Xbox One X aren't your style, Microsoft has just announced a new bundle for the Xbox One S. To coincide with the August 25 launch of EA's next entry in its long-running Madden series, Microsoft has launched a Madden NFL 18 Xbox One S bundle, which is now up for preorder for $279.

All told, this is pretty standard fare for an Xbox One S bundle. Here's all of what's included:

  • Xbox One S with a 500GB hard drive
  • Standard edition of Madden NFL 18
  • Xbox Wireless Controller
  • 1 month Xbox Game Pass subscription with unlimited access to over 100 Xbox One and Backward Compatible Xbox 360 games

As for Madden NFL 18, the game will introduce the series' first story mode, in which you can play as a prospect on his journey to the draft. There's also the usual gridiron play here, including 6-player online play, Madden Ultimate Team, and more. Madden NFL 18 will also be enhanced with visual upgrades for Xbox One X when it releases later this year.

Madden NFL 18 launches on August 25. For now, you can preorder the bundle, or just the game, direct from Microsoft.
